Pros: Nice flavor with a kick to it!
Cons: May be too "hot" for some.
Orville Redenbacher Popcorn has been a favorite at our house for years. Popcorn and movies are a marriage made in heaven and we love to indulge in a snack of good popcorn and a coke during movie-time. One of my latest discoveries on the popcorn aisle is Orville Redenbacher Natural Buttery Salt & Cracked Pepper Popcorn. After trying it, I believe it will be a regular treat around our house.
Orville Redenbacher Natural Buttery Salt & Cracked Pepper Popcorn
This product comes in both a 4 count package and a 10 count package. The 4 count box retails for about $2.59.
This product is marketed as a "natural" product since it contains whole grain popcorn. It also does not contain any artificial coloring, flavors or preservatives.
This flavor is butter and cracked pepper which is a bit different from the normal buttered popcorn that we normally reach for.
The Taste Test & My Thoughts
I didn't know exactly what to expect by this new flavor of popcorn. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The pepper is not a harsh flavor and included in just the right amount to add a "zip" to this popcorn.
Combined with the butter flavor, the cracked pepper flavor works very well. It's like added bonus to an already good thing. If you are a pepper fan and enjoy peppery foods, you will more than likely enjoy this popcorn flavor too.
I love the mini size bags. They are the perfect serving for one adult. You can get away with dividing a bag in between two small children. I find that purchasing the mini bags of popcorn is a great way to reduce throwing out leftover popcorn from full size bags. You can also have popcorn whenever you want it, without having to rely on someone else to help you finish off a full size bag.
This flavor may not be so popular with kids, but I think most adults will enjoy it. It's spicy and a nice change in the normal butter flavor.

I found Orville Redenbacher Natural Buttery Salt & Cracked Pepper Popcorn to be a nice change of pace from regular butter flavored popcorn. The addition of cracked pepper is not a flavor I would have imagined to be one for a great popcorn, but it works. Recommended: yes!
